Jet Bird, Crow by Albert Eustace - Zuni Fetish

$ 120.00

A large jet crow with turquoise inlaid eyes that look up at the viewer and incised wings - carved by Albert Eustace. The Zuni believe the crow is the keeper of sacred law. In the Zuni creation myth - when the Zunis arrived to the Middle World - what we call earth; they were given a choice between two eggs. The Zuni tribe chose the blue egg and consequently journeyed to their current homeland, destined to have a life full of toil with the crow as their guide - known forevermore as the Winter people. The other group chose the white egg & were thought to have migrated to South America and consequently are known as the Summer people. We have also been told that the crow is considered a good arbitrator due to it's ability to act as a sieve while digesting food. A crow is a symbol of life's magic and mysteries & also symbolizes intelligence, flexibility and destiny.
